    A little history on me.
    I've always been a "camper". Was a cub scout, and enjoyed many camping holidays as a kid.
    As a young adult my camping trips were mostly based at beer and/or music festivals, although we eventually matured to camping holidays.
    After a particularly hairy experience in Pembrokshire, involving a bell tent and a gale, the wife and I decided to purchase a camper van.
    We settled on a T5 panel conversion and enjoyed two years of European/UK short trips, and even when our son was born, stuck to the road with gusto.

    After a stressful year at work in 2016, we decided to jack it all in, rent out the flat, and head off for a year away (just the three of us) into Europe.
    We intended to go all of the places we'd never managed to get to in our three week holidays, as well as the ones we'd always intended to fly to.
    My wife convinced me to sell the T5 (hardest thing I have ever done) and buy a motorhome. With a small budget, we ended up with a 1992 Fiat Hymer B594, sold to us by a friend. It was an excellent decision, and our year away in Helmut the Hymer was thought provoking to a life changing tipping point.
    As the magical year away ended, we discovered that another little one would be coming along, so headed back to the dull life for jobs, hospital treatment, and saying goodbye to our beloved Hymer.

    So, here we are. 2 kids under 5, a ford focus estate, a couple of tents, more camping kit than fits in the car (although the purchase of a roof rack and top box will soon sort that) and an urge to enjoy the UK as much as we possibly can, has brought me into your world.

    I'm looking forward to getting stuck in, and discovering the recommendations, advice and tales of your experiences.

    Peace

    Ollie
    I've got a full length roof box / coffin, one of Halfrauds finest and roof bars if you want them, although you will have to come over to me to collect them. Oh yes, yet another 'oppy freebie, and welcome to the asylum
    Be the best that you can, without causing pain to others

    What a shame you had to bid farewell to Helmut but now that you've got the motorhoming bug, you just know he won't be your last home on wheels.

    We might not all be Earthlings on here ya know, although all entities are most welcome. There's one member who rumour has it could come from the planet Ubuntu in the Linux solar system
    Hello!

    It was a sad day, but she (yes, Helmut is a she) went to a chap in Portugal who gave her a full fix up, respray and interior spruce up. Everything we couldn't give her.
    We're always on the hunt for the next van, but determined to get out there in this strange time without one.

    Never been to Ubuntu in Linux, but heard the ice cream is reasonable off season.
